Hot and enjoyable holiday
Our stay at the Palace was one of our better holidays even though my wife fell sick on the plane and by the time we arrived in Malta she wasn't that good and the Palace went into action organising an onsite doctor and lemon and honey drinks daily,after four days we started our site seeing and sitting by the pool we both had a great holiday 10 out 10 for this establishment

Located well
Nice stay, welcoming hotel and located perfectly for my needs. Little inconsistent with the replacement of water/coffee etc in the room. Minor point.

Positive Experience
Very nice hotel and very good service. Reception were very friendly. However, to enter the executive room one needs to pass from a narrow corridor. Then you have access to a large nice room. Pity that corridor!
Simeon, gb3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
We had a lovely stay here, though I would not class this as a 5 star hotel. We stayed in an Executive room which was pleasant and clean, although the balcony door wouldn't close and upon reporting this to the front desk to fix while we were out, we returned to find they had just sealed it shut meaning we could not go out onto the balcony for the remainder of our stay. That being said, I would stay here again. Definitely try the Tempasain restaurant on the top floor for amazing views and food!

Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic location, superb views.
This hotel is fantastic. Probably more 4*, than 5*, but facilities (esp. rooftop pool and spa) are excellent, breakfast superb (we ate too much every day!), and the rooms were v. comfortable. We had a superior room on 8th floor, and the views were wonderful. The balcony was a great place to sit with a coffee in the morning and enjoy the sunrise over the sea. Service was exemplary - Tomas the concierge went above and beyond. Temptasian restaurant (fab views), definitely worth a visit. We also used the spa, and had a lovely relaxing massage. The location of the hotel was brilliant. 5 mins from the waterfront (where you can get the ferry to Valletta). Shops, bars etc. within walking distance. Wonderful Sliema beach 5 mins away. Beautiful church opposite the hotel is worth a visit. Overall v. good, and we would go back. Pretty good value too!

Very good 8.0
Good, not quite 5*
We were upgraded from a basic room to deluxe which had a balcony with a great view. So for us this one night stay was very good value - not sure I would have paid the extra though! The rooms are big but the decor a little in need of a refresh in places. The bed was huge but so soft we both felt it was collapsing in the middle, not good if you prefer support. Outside pool is freezing and a little lacking in atmosphere but with great views. All in all I’d return if in Sliema.
